Against the Grain

Fund Drive Special: Capitalism, Enclosure, and Resistance

It’s easy to view the last 250 or even 600 years as a relentless period of ascendant capitalism, conquering everything in its wake. But the work of historian Peter Linebaugh reminds us that resistance to capitalism was present at its birth and that working class movements for a better world have profoundly shaped our histories. Linebaugh recuperates the lives of some of those forgotten rebels, bringing their heady world and aspirations to ours, where we need them most.
